Weekend in Review - Week 36 update

This warm, sunny weekend Kurt and I went to Travel Town Museum in Burbank.  It's a cool place for hosting a kid's birthday party, and some of the trains can be reserved for parties.  It's also free to the general public with some great historical and educational exhibits.  The last time I went to Travel Town was in seventh grade with my good friend Robbi and her family.  It was all a blur except for the cute boy we flirted with in the parking lot.  That's all we talked about the whole ride home...girls, what can I say?

Nutrition & Meal Plan | Erin Stern's Elite Body 4-Week Fitness Plan
